This superb colt who has a name to live up to, James
Bond (already nicknamed 007 of course!), was born on the
24th of May 2019. He’s the full brother to the pretty
Iris U Morinda. He was ‘created’ by the Morinda stud, but ended up
carrying the affix ‘d’Elphen’ (the owners of his mother) before
being finally bought by us.
James Bond has plenty of energy, but like all of Ulyss’s
offspsring, he has a happy character and is very close to people.
This is a good thing as he’s destined to become a stallion. In
fact, this handsome colt has tested HOMOZYGOUS for the Tobiano
gene. His future offspring will be 100% Pies.
For the moment, baby 007 is being allowed to peacefully grow and
have fun with the other young colts of his age.
His father Ulyss Morinda, 5 *at the
CIRALE, comes from base bloodline that was marked 8 out of 10 by
the Selle Français studbook. The line goes back to the Grand Prix
mare Utricule (by Monceaux,TB) and then
to her daughter Piperazine Laleu, mother of several excellent
horses. Ulyss is a carrier of 5 Thoroughbred blood lines, one of
which is the famous Laudanum but there’s also Ladykiller, Furioso,
Pericles and Monceaux. As a maternal grandfather he also
has JALISCO B whom he very much
resembles. You can go to his page to see the details of his
wonderful bloodline and photos and videos of his performances.
Ulyss Morinda, Hunter Champion of France as a six year old came
back to his true discipline, the CSO in 2015 as a seven year old.
Ridden from now on by Rik Hemeryck (a Belgian), he won the Young
Stallions SF Masters for seven year olds (classed as ‘Very
Promising’ by the ANSF) and at nine years old, he was already a
winner and had been placed in numerous outings in 1.50m classes
(CSI 3*). He took part in his first CSI 5* in Rotterdam in June
2017 and his first 1.55m at the end of the year. He is ISO 150
In 2018, Ulyss confirmed his quality, at the start of the year
being placed in the 3* 1m50 Grand Prix at Bonheiden only half a
second behind Daniel Deusser, being placed 7th in
the 1m50 Bourg en Bresse Show Jumping (4*) and soaring over the
1m55 course at Maubeuge with an unbelievable casual air. Still
ridden by Rik Hemeryck, he was then placed in
the 1m60 Grand Prix, and successfully participated in his first
Nations’ Cup (Gijon CSIO 5*) and obtained an ISO 160 in
In 2019 he continued to make progress : he was placed many times
over 1m50 and 1m55, and won the 1m60 Grand Prix in the UK in front
of Laura Kraut (see the News section). He also took part in his
first 5* Rolex Grand Prix, and proved that he clearly has the
capability to jump these courses. He obtained an ISO 163 for 2019,
and in 2020, at only 12 years of age, has exceeded 100,000 Euros in
James Bond’s mother, Athena Naf, is a daughter
of Limbo, himself the sire of many high level performance horses,
including Visage Van de Olmenhoeve to name just one!
The mother of Athena Naf, Fazenda, is a
daughter of Vaillant de Brecey who brings the blood of the Founding
Father of the breed Le Tot de Semilly associated
with that of the great Rantzau (through his best
son, Starter). Fazenda produced JIVARO ACHUARA, ISO 146, who is
thus a uterine brother of Athena, as well as another daughter,
